Discovering a niche in the market, Bella has created ‘Bella Feathers’, a new business designing, sourcing and producing unique feather hair extensions.

Bella Feathers can be found located on the famous Portobello Road amongst the eclectic weekly traders of Portobello Market on most Fridays and Saturdays. Bella image1

‘Instant gratification’ is how Bella describes her latest pursuit:

“Feather hair extensions are a fresh way to reinvent your hair in seconds.

Wear subtle tones to blend with your natural colour or super-charged brights to stand out from the crowd,” says Bella.

Bella was first inspired 3 years ago: “A friend of mine arrived back from LA sporting an ensemble of glamorous feathers through her hair. Continue reading

Designing, Decorating & Doing Business

9 May

If you want a truly limited edition shopper then look no further…

The young ladies of the Heart 2 Change project have been designing, decorating and doing business all for A Way Out.

Starting from scratch the group first hand drew their designs and from there their creations soon flourished into everything from t-shirts to bags to aprons.

The girls have now taken on an Apprentice-esque enterprise scheme and have started selling their wonderful works at events – including the latest A Way Out’s Charity Fashion Show where they were a huge success.

Lucy Leaver from Design Hub Art Workshop has helped the girls from the start and has loved every minute!

“It’s been fantastic working with the Heart 2 Change girls at A Way Out – it’s great to see how their first designs have now been transformed into bang-on-trend shopper bags and I can’t wait to do more.”

Rags & Muffins

10 Oct

THE DESIGNER charity jumble sale that got Vogue talking came to Middlesbrough this past weekend to raise money for local charity A Way Out.

The Dickens Inn on Southfield road played host to Rags and Muffins – a jumble sale that only sells high-end high street and designer goods at a miniscule price.

“Rags and Muffins is no ordinary jumble sale,” says A WAY OUT’s CEO Jessie Jacobs, “we got Teesside’s Who’s Who together and asked them to raid their wardrobes for designer rags.

“The church hall, cups of tea and cake stalls have been replaced with a trendy bar, cocktails and designer cupcakes.

“From Topshop Unique through to vintage goodies we sell clothes, jewellery and accessories to raise funds for the life changing work of our charity.”

Bonjour!

My 5000 word essay on whether ‘the fashion blogopshere has taken over from the established fashion magazines’ has now been handed in so now I’m back to my usual bloggin-ness. YEY!

So yesterday off I popped to Primark for the first time since Christmas Eve!! – I know right, whats that all about? – and because I had left it for eternity and a day my favourite shop had plenty of cheap buys that I HAD to have, rather then having nothing like it usually has when I go in every day.

One thing I had noticed about Primark though is the fact that all their clothes have gone mega downhill ATM, there wasn’t anything clothes-wise that I liked let alone wanted. Perhaps, it’s the lull of post-Christmas fashion and that their Spring/Summer collections haven’t came through yet but really who the hell would wear a polyester khaki pair of flares? SORT IT OUT!
